I know change can be a shock but you will learn to cope.

 

There there.

We have already enough clowns, so who cares about some carts? WoT is circus already.

I like playing them, but i must partially agree with OP. 

From tier 8 and up they are not at all balanced around the game correctly. 

I guess it's ok when a lesser skilled player plays them. But the problem is when you put a good player in them.

The wheeled vehicles just move to fast for the guns of so many of the tanks in the game.

So the wheelies aren't the problem, we should ban all good players instead.:ohmy:

The thing is they cannot change the game because some players dislike something, if you start going down that rout they would have to change everything about the game and at the same time leave everything exactly as it is.

 

I'm Old School on this Their game they can do whatever they like.

If they ask my opinion I will give it

If not and I feel strongly about something I will comment like you did.

Either way they are not obliged to change things because I or someone else doesn't like it.

 

I wouldn't worry about them too much they take a good player for them to be effective and they are easy to kill when driven by mere mortals.

Then dont change game! Or if they change game, then that should be fair! So much unfair moves from Wg! Why they nerfed arty? Because arty was to strog! Unreal and unfair! Why not change this piece of crapon wheels? Thats also unfair! If they want stability in game and make a money for long period, they need make so many changes! Now game is totaly trash! From matchmaking till this French carts...

i play mainly lights and thus those WC, i play against them too with my T28proto,hellcat (not the fastest turret transverte tanks), IS3 and other tracked tanks.

 

as a WC player, i see crap, any TD,heavy,med of my team spot better than me until i unlocked the T9 which start to be a spotter (only 410m tho) but even at this tier, td and meds and some heavies have a better view range than me, under T9, i ve alwaus been spotted before spotting anything or never spot anything.

my lynx(t8) had 377m view range when my lttb (going 15kmh slower) has 480m and my IS3 420m. i dont even spot with them, totally useless but until mid/late game when u can use the speed more safely.

wheels have like 10hps , gets damaged all the time, 2 wheels dead, u lose 80% speed and i guess a tortoise will go faster :) and u dont have enough repair kits to repair wheels all the time.

full speed (85km/h) under 400m range, pretty any player above red can shoot u because in speed mode, u can t dodge crap, u r a brick with no armor. a regular light will go a bit slower but will be 3x nimble and way harder to hit ( and might bounce)

 

they are very hard to drive on narrow roads or streets or path with obstacles, they can t pivot ( that leads at least 30% of my deaths), drift a lot too. overturn (agility)or slowturn (speed)

u need to get a multiple comp crew to get something from them, to compensate the bad view range (3+ comp)

 

peeps who bought or won the premium one, they saw at first hand how hard it was to drive them and those who complained about them...dont  complain anymore.

 

pretty much no players are stupid enough to get caught on open field so i don t recall the last time i could circle a tank safely on open field and tear it down.. may be one kill out of 200/300 kills? ....

 

never engage another light, u will lose most of the time especially vs the LT432. HE has good pen but is random.

 

i plaayed the EBR 105 on the test and this tank is the only spotter of the line, speed and a decent VR (well less bad than the other cars) , its gun has a low pen and a long reload so fire support so never engage 1 vs 1 anything.

 

against WC.

my tds have no problem to shoot them ( <400m) despite their slow traverse, i dont allow to get circled so they will have to get by my gun soon or later, i outspot them without problem with any of my tanks and usually manage to shoot one ammo and not even get spotted back (thx to their crappy view range), my IS3 and T28prot dont care much about them, they have 180/190pen (T9)

 

as a spotter, i m 4 x more efficient in a regular light (way better view range), as a fire support , i m 3x more efficient too ( amx 13 XX line, T71DA), WC just add fast reverse speed for relocation or gateway, i keep playing tyhem because they are fun to play with it and i still manage to get a decent WR with them but effectively speaking, my regular lights would bring more to the team (which is wierd cause the WR is the same..)

Unfortunately they are highly disruptive to the game. The game was somewhat slow paced enough for aged players to play, like my uncle. Now you see at least 2 every game and someone like him cannot cope. So he stopped playing.

 

And guess what. He was buying premium account every month. WG wil lose a lot of paying customers because of the brilliant idea of fast moving, very fast turning wheeled vehicles.

i have a 65 old player in my clan, he shoot those tanks without much troubles, furthermore, he enjoys that because when u kill them, the wreck does multi saltos/flips before staying still.

The word "probably" in conjunction with "i have a 65 old player in my clan" makes me really doubt this player exists. But nice try.

hey, I am also one of old aged players that cannot cope with buzzing little annoying buggers. I already thought before that auto aim especially in combination with "gold rounds" are anomaly because they allowed you to drive and shoot without the need to look where you want to shoot.

But seems like "pew pew" tanks will slowly overtake the game, but at least for a moment I find a great cure for it. It's called Obj.257, the "russian bias" with stupid armour. Before it was mostly catching the dust in my garage, since I got it for free, but I brought it out, already during the last surge of new "golden" scouts. And it works wonder against the new wheeled tanks too.

My advice, don't get annoyed by game changes, improvise, adapt, overcome, bring something back to game, that annoys other players even more. :harp:

Well, he only wrote that the player is 65 old. But 65 what? Maybe not Earth but Venus years (which would then make that player about 40 Earth years old)

OK so these things can be annoying on big open maps...well they have broken Frontline...impossible to hit at full speed when weaving around all over the place and a platoon of 3 of them is even worse, they can run straight into the cap before you have pressed W at the start LOL...another reason this game sucks [edited]right now, they really are milking a dying cow for all they can before it dies aren't they...pay to not have arty, I'd rather pay to not have these in the game honestly
